Our internship program is highly rated and we take pride in offering Launch PR®, digital PR and social media guidance, which provides our interns with an opportunity to learn key disciplines from agency professionals. Interns participate in monthly workshops to help hone their skills for a career in the PR, marketing communications industry and beyond, including resume writing and job interview training. Our interns are part of our SA Newsroom, working alongside our staff to craft and execute integrated media programs.

We created our internship program with the intention of getting students more involved in hands-on work, rather than just creating media lists and making copies. We love to give our interns challenging work that can provide industry experience you can’t find elsewhere.
